Jeffries to meet with top House Dems amid concerns over Biden

The meeting will take place virtually on Sunday afternoon before the House convenes next week.


House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries will be meeting with top Democrats in Congress next week amid growing concerns over Joe Biden, a topic that is certain to come up in the meeting, according to a report from Axios. The Democrats will meet virtually before the House convenes next week. 

The outlet reported that two sources familiar with the meeting said that the meeting will touch on Biden as a topic of concern among others on Sunday afternoon. One of the sources expressed "certainty" that Biden will be discussed as "part of a wider discussion of topics." 

House Democrats informed reporters that Jeffries, while he has publicly supported Biden, has been careful not to stifle growing concerns that many see as the incumbent president has dropped in the polls since a catastrophic debate performance last week. The House minority leader has avoided taking a firm stance on the matter in private talks with other Democrats.  

Democrats who have publicly called for Biden to drop out of the race include Reps. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Seth Moulton (D-MA), Mike Quigley (D-IL), and Angie Craig (D-MN), per the outlet.  

Biden has vowed that he will be staying in the race despite calls from Democrats as well as liberal pundits for him to drop out before the Democratic National Convention. In a WSJ poll after the debate, Trump led Biden by six points nationally in the 2024 presidential race. Trump has also pulled ahead in some polls in states not on the radar for Trump prior to the debate such as New Jersey and New Hampshire
